For Graciel: Proof of Angels

the morning snow
soft soft falling slow
disappearing into your skin
the moment it found you.
a dance with angels

the snow of mid-afternoon
faster colder bigger
then small, almost gone, almost rain,
then back again.
colder.
out there now in the late afternoon
it is once again soft and slow,
unable to make up its mind.

i take it as it is.
a gift.
magic.
a sign.
proof.

  2. if you could see me, you would see a mouth just beginning to quiver and eyes scrunched and moist.

    a sign, surely a sign that angels exist and dance on our behalf. not necessarily because of the snow, but because of you and your sweet angel soul.

    hands together, i bow to you.

    thank you and namaste.

  8. I saw very few snowflakes this year. I am soaking up this post as I imagine that is my hand reaching out to feel the magic.

    So beautiful.
